SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that is aimed at preventing the so-called email counterfeiting. In simple terms, this indicates sending some message from one email address and making it appear to be sent from another with the purpose to scam in some manner the person getting it. When the SPF protection is running for a domain name, a record that includes all of the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses part of the domain is generated. The record is saved on all of the DNS servers that route the web traffic all over the world, so they all can identify whether an email message comes from a legitimate server or not. The verification is conducted at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, and in the second it's discarded and it never gets to the intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domain names will stop all unauthorized people from making use of your email addresses for harmful purposes.

SPF Protection in Cloud Hosting

The SPF protection function is available by default with each cloud hosting package that we offer and you'll be able to use it without difficulty in order to protect the e-mails for each domain name hosted as part of your account. The service is operated through the Emails section of the revolutionary, albeit easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel. All it takes to enable the protection is to type the IP address of the e-mail server and its hostname - mail.server.com, for example. When the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send email messages from e-mails created under the domain name that you have picked. Your emails may be handled by another provider, but when we handle them together with your web site, you can activate an option for email messages to be sent only when the domain uses our MX records. This feature gives you even better protection as just our server will be permitted to send e-mail messages from your mailboxes and you'll have superior control. When you have any kind of questions or in case you experience any kind of problems with this particular service, you can contact our tech support crew anytime and they'll help you immediately.
